Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that whilst he was a player, he used to idolise former United forward Denis Law.
Ferguson said: ‘He epitomised to me everything about a Scotsman. He could start a row in an empty house, fight his own shadow, unbelievable courage, electric pace, exciting and dynamic to watch – I always loved Denis as a player.’
The United manager also spoke of his admiration for Willie Woodburn and Willie Waddell, who he watched whilst growing up playing for his beloved Rangers. Ferguson went on to make 41 appearances for Rangers in a two year spell, but has enjoyed more success in management first with SPL side Aberdeen and then in a 25 year career with the Premier League champions.
